Pine or Spruce or Fir

Pine or Spruce or Fir___Sketch # 29 in my Colorado sketchbook, EBAY sale starts Thursday, Sept. 23

This title is one of my better ones! I really do not know if this tree was a pine or a spruce or a fir. All three of these types of trees are in the forests where our place is in Colorado. I think pine trees have needles, and the spruce there is "blue spruce" and this one was not blue...so, maybe it's a fir!...what attracted me to it was the gnarled trunk and branches...
PLEASE click here to see the web page I put up last night. It shows EVERY SKETCH in my Colorado Sketchbook. I like being able to see them all together in one place. Tomorrow, I will post the last one, #30.
Also on Thursday, (today or tomorrow, depending on when you read this!) September 23 begins my sketchbook sale. I am offering the ENTIRE sketchbook to any collector who wants it. This is not a "Daily Painting" price tag, so beware when you see the price! This sketchbook represents two weeks of work, and study and field notes. I want my closest art friends to have first shot at it, since I know your appreciation! But if no one buys it this month, I will send it to a gallery. Here is the link for the ebay sale. Below shows how each sketch fits on the page...there are a couple similar photos on my web page...please comment!
